Metalphoto Processing

Photo anodized aluminum combines extreme durability in harsh environments with a high quality, long lasting appearance.Variety of thicknesses and finishes, 20+ year life. Resistant to chemicals, abrasion, heat, UV, outdoor weathering.This stuff is TOUGH!

For over 50 years, industrial and military engineers have specified Metalphoto photosensitive anodized aluminum for durable nameplates, barcode labels, service schematics and control panels installed in harsh operating environments.

Metalphoto’s proprietary technology permanently seals a UV-stable image inside anodized aluminum, offering the confidence of unparalleled durability, image resolution and readability.

Product Benefits

  • Durability – Made from photosensitive anodized aluminum, Metalphoto tags resist fading, abrasion and corrosion caused by exposure to UV light, salt, weather, industrial cleaners and chemical fluids. They’re moisture and stain resistant, and easy to clean.
  • Precision – The proprietary technology that permanently seals a UV-stable image inside the metal guarantees the most precise resolution you’ll ever see, even on detailed schematic diagrams, small fonts, and bar codes. (If you’re relabeling sites and equipment with QR codes, Metalphoto is great for that. Ask us for details!)
  • Cost-effective – Metalphoto is economical. On average, it costs about 30 percent less than etched and filled stainless steel.
  • Efficient – Production time is shorter - in many cases you’ll have your Metalphoto tags and labels much faster than etched and filled stainless steel.
